Biography

“While we were working on our album these past few months, we could literally feel how powerful and creative our work was–and how much fun we were still having, in the process,” says SCORPIONS lead singer KLAUS MEINE about the band’s new album STING IN THE TAIL. “We want to end the SCORPIONS’ extraordinary career on a high note.

Format: Audio CD
With `Face the Heat', the Scorpions show some evidence that they still possess the ability to pen a great tune and there are flashes of the brilliance that placed them in the highest echelons of heavy rock just a few years previous. Yet a lot of the album is clichéd material - lightweight melodies and throwaway rockers that are far too flimsy to stick with the listener. Worse, the slow songs are, for the most part, depressingly mediocre, which is an absolute tragedy for a band that throughout a long career had a strong legacy of writing excellent power ballads.
`Face the Heat' certainly starts brightly, with the powerful, brooding metal of `Alien Nation' and the stadium thumper `No Pain, No Gain', but it descends into a mixed bag of half-baked rock songs and cheesy ballads (esp. the bonus tracks). Looking for highpoints, apart from the two opening tracks, `Woman' is a decent love song, thanks to a fine vocal performance from Klaus Meine (though it's no match for `Lady Starlight', let alone `Still Loving You') and `Ship of Fools' has a lively, upbeat and infectious rhythm. But beyond these, it's hard to find much pleasure in this formulaic hard rock.

I would rate all the scorps cd's up to this one as five star. that's 15 solid great metal releases. This was filled with some great songs and alot of average ones. some rock like 'no pain no gain' and others seems more pedestrian. Still a more average scorpions cd is better than some artists best. They wouldn't return to greatness until 'unbreakable'.

It says a lot for the content of this album that having had two original tapes chewed up I am now buying it on CD. The album has, in my opinion, the best variety of any Scorpions Album. It is worth buying for the first track (Alien Nation) alone. It is probably the heaviest Scorpions song to date and an awsome start to the album. Be prepared for the content to mellow more and more from that point until it ends with Daddy's Girl, which is a somewhat disturbing song about child abuse sung in the form of a lullaby. There are the usual Scorpions ballards and the standard rock tracks to keep fans happy. The only downside that I have found is that it is not such an easy album to listen to as previous albums, but you may still find that you listen to it more. If you only have one Scorpions album in your collection I would recommend this one.
